Changing the Lilo Splash Screen in Redhat 7.0

The version of Lilo that accompanies Redhat 7.0 has the handy feature of displaying an image and a menu instead of just the lilo: prompt. You can change the image to whatever you want, just edit /boot/messages as a PCX file. The first colour is used for text, the second is the background and the last colour in the palette is used for highlighted text (the highlight is just the text colour, I think). At least, that's how it worked for me. I can't find any documentation on this. Oh, and if you want to get rid of it, remove the message=/boot/message from your /etc/lilo.conf.
